Lesson objective: Solve problems involving fair share situations to practice reporting fractional remainders.
This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of interpreting fractional remainders in a fair share situation to a real-life situation. Students are asked to create a list for the new owners of Pet Palace telling them how to evenly share the supplies left for the cats and kittens.
Key Concept students will use:
We can interpret \(({a \over b}) \times q\) as "a" parts of a partition of q into b equal parts.
Skills students will use:
Students engage in Mathematical Practice 8 (Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning) as they use solve a variety of similar situations that require them to express a remainder as a fairly shared amount.
Key vocabulary:
